2013 FISHING ATLAS NOW AVAILABLE

May 2, 2013

Kansas Fishing Atlas is one-stop shopping for anglers in search of the perfect fishing hole

PRATT ­– Packed with over 60 pages of detailed, easy-to-read maps, the 2013 Kansas Fishing Atlas is a must-have for any angler. In addition to maps of public waters, anglers can also find maps of Fishing Impoundment and Stream Habitats (F.I.S.H.) waters, Community Fisheries Assistance Program (CFAP) leased properties, and lakes deemed as Family Friendly Facilities (FFF).

F.I.S.H.

F.I.S.H. sites are privately-owned ponds or streams the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) has leased and opened to public fishing. These sites are numbered in red on each map.

CFAP

CFAP leases fishing rights for lakes operated by communities to ensure no additional fees are charged for anglers. More than 200 community lakes, covering nearly 13,000 acres, are enrolled in CFAP for 2013.

FFF

FFF lakes are alcohol-free fishing spots with flush toilets, regular security patrols, security lighting and easy accessibility, making them perfect for family fishing outings. FFF lakes are indicated on the list of CFAP-enrolled properties found at the front of the fishing atlas.

Anglers can obtain the 2013 Kansas Fishing Atlas from most KDWPT offices and license vendors, as well as online at www.ksoutdoors.com
